Are thumb-sucking and pacifier habits harmful for a child's teeth?

Children's Dentistry | Middletown Dental | Middletown NJProper Oral Health Tips for Kids

Thumb and pacifier sucking habits will generally only become a problem if they go on for a very long period of time. Most children stop these habits on their own, but if they are still sucking their thumbs or fingers past the age of three, a mouth appliance may be recommended by your dentist.
